Red Curculigo: a new species?

 

 

 

 

Red Curculigo

This species is very rare and grows in the more Northern and colder parts of Xishuangbanna. It flowers in July and August (while Curculigo capitulata flowers in spring). The leaves are slightly more slender and erect and the most differentiating aspects are its beautiful red stems.
This species will be able to thrive well in colder climates and it will make a beautiful indoor plant. The leaves grow to a length of about 1.5 meter. It prefers shade and will perform best under the shading of trees. We will appreciate if a taxonomist can contact us for name verification or new description of the species.

Your ecologically friendly production of plants:
proudly traceable!


Imagine, the traceability of your supply chain leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your organic products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your company?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to rain forest and biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.
